There are a couple of things about the origin of the town name of "mochidono" in this Mochiidono Shopping Mall.
One of them said earlier.
This time I will tell you the legend that is left in this Shopping Mall.
About 1100 years ago the high priest of Todaiji is going to exterminate the giant serpent who is annoying many ascetics in the Omine mountains.
It was the people of Mochiidono town who gave in to the accompanying.
They went to Omine mountain with a lot of Mochi(rice cakes).
And they gave mochi(rice cakes) to people who were seriously damaged.
And off course they also exterminated the giant serpent.
After that, the high priest gave them "Mochiidono" to the title.
Ever since, this town is called "Mochidono"
There is a studio of FM broadcasting station in this Mochiidono Shopping Mall.
